Insanely Good Guava Peppersauce (hot-sauce).

Insanely Good Guava Peppersauce (hot-sauce).

While I don't have immediate access to many of the fruits I grew up eating as a young fella on the islands, with many local groceries servicing the vibrant immigrant population in Ontario, there are times when I luck out. This time I came across ripe guavas (mind you they were not the best quality) at my favorite Asian market. Usually I'd make guava jam or guava cheese, but the amount of fruit required for those two recipes.. let's just say my budget didn't allow for it. So a fruity peppersauce came to mind.

Cider Maple Habanero Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

Cider Maple Habanero Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

This past Fall I decided to do a peppersauce tribute to my home for the last 20 something years.. Canada. With a bumper crop of Habanero peppers (works great with scotch bonnets as well) in my small kitchen garden at the back of my house, the creative juices were flowing. Habaneros are some of my favorite spicy peppers, with the natural fruity undertones along with the fiery heat they possess. With a dose of fresh made apple cider (not vinegar) and some organic maple syrup, this pepper sauce was truly heavenly.

Fruity Passion Fruit Pepper Sauce.

Fruity Passion Fruit Pepper Sauce.

With my love for peppersauce (hot sauce) I'm always challenging myself to find different flavors to compliment the scorching heat of our beloved Scotch Bonnet Peppers, to add balance, depth and a unique finish. While this peppersauce is fiery, the fruity undertones of the passion fruit makes it very tasty and bearable for those of you who are not into pure heat! My mom like many from her generation, will argue that when making a 'good' peppersauce, there's no room for fruit. However with the success I've had with the 10 + fruity pepper sauces I've shared on here, that mindset can be challenged.

Fiery Bajan (Barbados) Pepper Sauce.

Fiery Bajan (Barbados) Pepper Sauce.

After a week of enjoying some of the best (probably debatable) peppersauce while tasting Barbados, I thought I'd share my take on this classic Caribbean hot sauce. We were in Barbados for the annual Food and Rum Festival and like the rest of the Caribbean, there were an assortment of pepper sauces to accompany every dish we had. Bajans (Barbadians) are VERY passionate about their pepper sauces and while this recipe is not as "traditional", it could rival any we enjoyed while in Barbados.

Screaming Fruity Peppersauce (Hot Sauce)

Screaming Fruity Peppersauce (Hot Sauce)

Every summer I try to plant many of the herbs, vegetables and peppers I use in the recipes I share, in the little garden I have at the back of our home. Nothing gives me pleasure than knowing what went into growing my food and there's always a sense of accomplishment as well for me. Every year I try to plant a variety of HOT peppers, ranging from the insane stuff to mild and flavorful. This homemade pepper-sauce is not about the mild - unfortunately. We're going for raw heat with the peppers I'll be using, However with the addition of the frozen berries things will balance off naturally.

The Ultimate Pepper Choka Recipe.

The Ultimate Pepper Choka Recipe.

Not sure if it was the way I was dressed/looked or the washed-down accent I used in placing my order, but the doubles vendor inside West Bees supermarket in Diego Martin (Trinidad) took time from her busy lunchtime line of customers to warn me "son be careful eh, this rheel hot". Pepper choka is one of the many SPICY condiments you'll find at most street vendors throughout the twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Scotch Bonnet (known locally as congo pepper) peppers, roasted and made into a chunky sort of salsa.

Traditional Caribbean Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

Traditional Caribbean Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

This is as old school as a recipe could possibly get on CaribbeanPot.com. Not just the recipe but the tool and technique I'll be using. Before the days of electric blenders and food processors, we had food mills. Used to grind the dhal for making dhalpuri roti, preparing the dried fruits for making traditional black/rum cake, making homemade pepper sauces, grinding dried corn for making chilli bibbi and so many other uses in the kitchen. Luckily my mom brought a mill for me many years back and with the abundance of fiery hot peppers in my garden last summer, I thought I'd dust out the Mr. mill and share this recipe with you all. Hopefully I'll give you a glimpse into a glorious past.. something we seem to be losing touch with.
